Cape colonial farmsteads built in the later eighteenth through to the early nineteenth centuries are a major tourist attraction in an area known as the Cape winelands. Who were the people who built these houses? When and why did this unique style of architecture emerge in a colony of impoverished, semi-literate, European immigrants? And why, of all the Dutch colonies in various parts of the world, did it emerge only at the Cape? These are the main questions addressed by the author. 70 Brown, Andrew.

In mid-1942, when Nazi darkness was overwhelming the British Empire, U-boats sank 46 vessels off the Cape of Good Hope and in the Indian Ocean. The U-boats were directed from a transmitter aboard a German ship which sought shelter in the neutral Portuguese enclave of Goa, 400 miles south of then Bombay. British forces could not intervene. In Calcutta, civilian merchants, bankers, lawyers and accountants belonged to a part-time territorial unit, the Calcutta Light Horse, which was established because they enjoyed riding and racing. At their own expense and acting independently, fourteen members of the unit stopped further transmission of radio messages. 145 Leibbrandt, H.C.V. [ed.].

Louis Leipoldt, one of South Africa's best-known men of letters, qualified as a doctor in 1907. After practising in and around London, he returned to South Africa in 1914 to become Chief Medical Inspector of Schools in the Transvaal. This book was the result of his experiences in that post. Not only does he discuss the medical aspects of his job, but in Leipoldt fashion, discusses the flora, the fauna, the politics and the people he encountered and thus allows us a glimpse of those who inhabited what was one of the most isolated parts of South Africa. 148 Leipoldt, C.

Molteno was the son of the first Prime Minister of the Cape Colony (1872-8), John Molteno. He was a staunch advocate of colonial self government, and believed there should be closer union between the English and Dutch inhabitants of South Africa. He was making this argument as the winds of war began to gather in southern Africa. He points out that the problem was not racial (relating to language groups), but political. 160 Moore, Dermot & Bagshawe, Peter. SOUTH AFRICA'S FLYING CHEETAH'S IN KOREA: [2 Squadron S.A.A.F.].

Led by Prof. F.R. Tomlinson, the Commission submitted its report on 1 October 1954. It comprised 3755 pages, 598 tables and 66 large maps. It was decided that it would be too expensive and too unwieldy to reproduce for the interested reader, and so the Commission was asked to produce a summary along with the final edited version of the Report. This item is the summary of the Commission's line of thought, and includes their unabridged findings and recommendations. The Tomlinson Commission formed the basis for the eventual "Homeland" system. The Commission recommended the attracting of industrialists to those areas and the stimulation of agriculture to keep farmers and their families in the homelands. The Report is one of the most important produced in South Africa in the 20th century. The Commission was tasked to answer one question: should development be separate, or should there be integration of the races? Taking all factors into consideration, the Commission recommended the latter choice, namely, that of separate development p. 207. Thus was South Africa's path determined. 195 Versfeld, Marthinus.
